Barbados Education Minister, Anthony Wood is calling for a review of the law on school attire in that country.

This follows the reported suspension of several students at a state-run trade school for wearing locks.

The school is reported to have demanded that the students present evidence that they are Rastafarians to be readmitted.

A newly appointed young Senator in Barbados reportedly caused a stir, by turning up for Parliament with his hair in cornrows.
